(reopened) Switch users.. game continue to run?
Short story.. I was running an add-on for an online game I play. At times I log off my Windows XP (by using the Switch Users feature). When I came back the game would still be running just fine. I've been using this add-on for over a week now or so with no issues.
So, for the past few days I have issues where I'd come back and am disconnected.
So, I asked on a forum in regards to the add on and the person said that when you switch users on Windows most software will close because you don't have access to such things as the graphics card, etc.
Is that true?
I've never seen programs have problems like that before. I've left some games running before (including the one I am having problems with now), torrent, I copy files over my wireless network to the television, etc. The reason I switch users on Windows is so nobody can use my computer when I am not away and some of the stuff I do takes awhile. Not that I have anything to hide ('cept a little porn, but who doesn't have porn these days).. just don't like people having access to my passwords or accidentally deleting my files.
You see, I was running a trivia add-on for World of Warcraft. We were having a guild contest where people could win prizes and money. It automatically asks people trivia questions, looks for answers, scores people, etc.
